ARLINGTON — A 26-year-old man remained in jail Friday, about week after he was arrested in the death of a Richland Hills woman.
Donald Paul Hunting was in the Arlington Jail with bail set at $150,000.
Ana Thayer, 36, of Richland Hills was shot in the head by a handgun on July 5, the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office reported.
“The deceased woman and the suspect were not related by marriage or family, but knew one another,” Tiara Ellis Richard, a police spokeswoman, said Friday.
According to earlier reports, Hunting’s father called 911 about 8:45 p.m. July 5 to say that a woman had been killed in the 600 block of Gemini Court, where Hunting lives.
Officers found the dead woman in a duplex and then spotted Hunting at a nearby duplex. He refused to talk to officers and they learned that he might be armed, so they evacuated five duplexes.
After a seven-hour standoff, Hunting was arrested about 4 a.m. July 6.
Almost 23 years to the day he shot his estranged wife to death in Houston County, Jesse Edge Jr. gunned down another woman, this time at his mobile home on the outskirts of Hawkinsville.
Then he killed himself.
Investigators are all but certain last week’s slaying of Misty L. Oliver, 31, and the 67-year-old Edge’s death were part of a murder-suicide.
That said, the GBI isn’t sure what triggered the shootings.
Edge and Oliver were both shot in the head. Their bodies were found Friday afternoon at Edge’s Riverview Drive residence, which sits on a 3-acre tract along the Ocmulgee River southeast of downtown Hawkinsville.

Police arrested Vannison’s boyfriend Samad Pittman, 29, and said that he had been involved in an argument with Vannison before he shot her. He is charged with first degree murder as well as gun offenses.
